National Museum Of Korea, Seoul Reviews

  • Great variety of exhibits with world class special exhibitions coming through b all the time. When we visited they had a collection on loan from the Hermitage. The price of admission is incredibly low. My only recommendation is make sure you arrive early to give yourself plenty of time to fully enjoy all the exhibits. I ran out of time when I went. Make sure you enjoy the gardens and ponds surrounding the museums. They're an absolute delight even in winter.

  • If you visit here you will get a lot to know about south korea particularly about their history and heritage. There is various complexes here, some are free while some are not. But of you visit here you will get to know about their progress from the most ancient times to the modern when it has become one of the main business capitals of the world

  • The National Museum of Korea is perfect for escaping heat or rain or snow and still havkng a wonderful time. I have been lucky enough to go twice. It feels big and brught and has a great food court. The kids learn a lot of info in school and gave my husband and I a phenomenal tour. Another time, we explored with younger children .

  • Free exhibition that let you know about the history of Korea. It is a quite awesome place. You can reach this place by Metro line 4 "i-chon" station, exit 2. Only takes 5 ~ 7 minutes by walk from the station. The museum has cafeteria and restaurants for your rest. It opens from 10 am to 6 pm on weekdays and to 7 pm on weekend. (Extended open hours until 9 pm on Wednesday and Saturday only)

  • The building is Top quality... very nice design, but the exposition is the most boring exposition you will see in a museum. I would say don't go and invest your time in something else.
